Brady: Time to move on to Miami

Speaking after his team's 38-30 win over the Bills Sunday at Gillette Stadium, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said that no matter how his team accomplished it, the victory was a solid one and provides much-needed momentum heading into the Pats' Monday night showdown with the Dolphins.

 

"You're trying to win the game. At the end of the year when you look at your record, 'Oh that was a close one, that counts as half a win.' A win is a win," Brady explained. "It doesn't matter if you win by 50 or by one because the following week it really makes no difference how we did the previous week. It's like a chapter. Once this chapter is over you move on. You don't reflect well last week we lost by 30, this week we won by seven, so we're still a crappy team. No, we're 1-1. The goal is to win the game. It's really not a matter of, 'God, that's a great looking win,' or 'That's a bad win.' You're trying to win."

Brady on crowd: 'I thought they were great'

After criticizing the Gillette Stadium crowd for not being boisterous enough, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said he was impressed with the fans throughout the Patriots' 38-30 win over the Bills. "I thought they were great. I really did. I thought they were into it. They were loud. That's a great advantage for us when the crowd's loud. I thought they were really into it. There was some musket fire today so that got it pretty loud."

 

Brady finished going 21-of-27 for 252 yards, throwing for three touchdowns while compiling a 142.6 passing rating, the 11th best of his career. The Patriots' quarterback incited one of the biggest positive reactions from the sell-out crowd in the second quarter when he sprung up after running for a first down and made the first-down signal.

 

"Yeah, they...

Balanced attack: Brady, run game leads Pats

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady threw for three touchdowns, including a pair to Randy Moss, and Danny Woodhead and BenJarvus Green-Ellis each ran for a score as the Patriots fended off the Bills, 38-30, Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium. 

 

The Bills, with new starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, put up a tough struggle, taking leads of 13-7 and 16-14 just prior to halftime before Steve Gostkowski's 42-yard field goal gave the Patriots the lead for good. Brady's second TD pass of the day, a 35-yarder over the middle, put the Patriots up, 24-16. That was followed immediately by a 95-yard kickoff return by C.J. Spiller down the right sideline. 

 

Brady put together TD drives of 75 and 59 yards to seal the win. Moss now has 50 receiving TDs with the Patriots, tied with Ben Coates for 2nd in franchise history. Moss also moved ahead of Marvin Harrison into 5th place in all-time receiving yards in the NFL.

In reversal, Yanks to start Hughes vs. Sox

NEW YORK -- In a surprise development, the Yankees will start Phil Hughes instead of Dustin Moseley against the Red Sox on Sunday night. Joel Sherman of the New York Post was the first to report the decision.

 

Hughes is 17-8 with a 4.31 ERA, while Moseley is 4-3 with a 4.94 mark. On Friday, the Yankees had made the decision to skip Hughes, who has thrown a career-high 169 1/3 innings, in favor of Moseley in hopes of preserving the arm of their 24-year-old right-hander. But that decision occurred at a time when the Yankees were 7 1/2 games up in the division; with the Red Sox having trimmed the deficit to 5 1/2 games with victories in each of the first two contests of the three-game series in Yankee Stadium, New York made its decision to reverse its decision.

 

"I don't think it's panic,"...
